Innovation brings profit

The cattle industry needs to make some bold, creative changes to ensure its viability. That was the wakeup call from speakers at the Feeding Quality Forum, Aug. 27 to 28 in Amarillo, Texas. Persistent problems may require new approaches.

Fetus to feedyard

This isn’t a research topic you’d find at the middle-school science fair. It’s so new, research is just beginning to explore this 16-letter term for immune cells sharing nutrients with major organs: immunometabolism. So far, there are still more questions than answers.

One thing leads to another

There’s a cause and a consequence for everything. You can see it in cow herds just before and after calving, says Allison Meyer, animal scientist at the University of Missouri.

A new “middle meat”

My taste buds were watering just looking at the menu.
